Hello. It's been several years since I've had to post here, which is good I suppose. :thumbsup: Forgive me if this is the wrong forum. I wasn't sure where this topic belonged. But recently, I somehow wound up with the WinSpywareProtect malware installed on my computer, along with some worm and a whole bunch of adware. I was able to delete WinSpywareProtect manually through safe mode, the worm with malwarebytes, and the adware through various other programs. However, now I'm missing a .dll file that Vista alerts me about when I start up my computer. It tells me that:

...AppData\Local\Temp\ljJCrOHb.dll

is missing. I've checked several "download .dll files" sites, and I can't find anything! I don't know what the file does or if it's important or not. Can someone help me find it/tell me if it's worth finding/etc?

Welcome back

What if the missing randomly named dll file was part of an infection that had been deleted but the corresponding registry entry to load that dll on bootup was left in place?

Posting some logs and rerunning scans might shed some light on this issue.

After you are "clean" is the time to remove startup errors from orphaned files.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

It would be better to edit your post and remove your HJT log

until further investigation warrants one

this is not the forum for them
